A selection of wines to pair with Spring time dishes and others to simply enjoy on their own! We’re also delighted to introduce some exciting new additions in this months case including our ‘Wines We Love’, a new Organic Sicilian white. Happy Easter!
‘Logis de la Bouchardière’ Chinon 2015 £12.50
This is a deliciously succulent mid-weight red which has seen a touch of old-oak ageing. Fragrant, fruity and herbaceous combine with supple tannins and lengthy finish. A stylish, great value and very tasty Chinon indeed!
Bruno Sourdais is at the helm of The Logis de la Bourchardière, a domaine dating back to 1850 with its oldest vines being over 100 years old. The fruit for this Chinon come from grapes from some of the younger vines, approx 30 year old.
It just has to be Charcuterie.
Rebel Canyon Merlot 2016 £9
This new addition is a hit. Not only is it great value but it lives up to Merlot expectations, juicy fruit, ripe plums and dark cherries, soft tannins, rich and smooth, an easy drinking drop.
You’ll find no oak here just bags of fruit. The dark-skinned Merlot grapes reach optimum ripens in the Californian climate, Rebel blends Merlot fruit from different growers to make a rounded juicy wine with balance and elegance.
The perfect evening partner!
Bodegas Murviedo Bobal Cepas Viejas £12.50
Utiel Requena, Spain
Aromatic and bursting with flavour. Forest fruit characters sit alongside a little spice, vanilla and mocha notes. This red has plenty going on… structure, silky tannins, fruity yet fresh with a long and pleasantly dry finish.
The Bobal variety thrives in extreme conditions, long hot sunny days and cool nights, the result for these old vines is a low yet very high quality yield of fruit. After fermentation the wine is aged in new American and French oak for 8 months.
A great match for a Lamb roast.
Val D’Oca Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superior, Rive Di Colbertaldo NV £15.50
A beautifully fine, dry and lively sparkling, layers of flavour, depth and finesse. Soft and appley with just the right amount of zing to get your taste buds tingling. It is rich in both aroma, flavour and structure.
The best grapes from the Colbertaldo area are carefully selected and hand-picked to make this delicious and favourite Prosecco.
For Easter time festivities or to pop open as soon as the springtime sun shines! Fabulous with shellfish.
Da Vero Vino Biologico White 2017 £8
Bright and crisp. Ripe stone fruits, citrus and zippy acidity makes for a fab combination and a very versatile light white.
Sicily’s dry climate is conducive to Organic agricultural practises and the vines for Da Vero have been grown organically since 2005. The fruit is fermented at a cool temperature and aged in stainless steel tanks retaining aromatics, acidity and freshness of fruit.
Pre-dinner nibbles suits this white just fine. Seafood or risottos are the go if you want to give this white a pairing.
Domaine Pré Baron Sauvignon Blanc 2016 £10.50
Touraine, Loire Valley
Our faithful friend, Pré Baron Sauvignon Blanc is a classic Touraine Sauvignon and a beautifully refreshing springtime wine. Intensely aromatic, herbaceous and fruity nose. The palate is bursting with gooseberries, fresh and zingy.
The best fruit is selected and hand-picked from 25 year old vines. After a slow three week fermentation the wine is aged on the lees until bottling in the Spring.
Enjoy with a Spring chicken dish or as a nicely chilled glass whilst cooking the dinner!
